Who can take part?
All musically talented citizens of Belarus as well as foreign citizens and those who have no citizenship but are living nationwide are invited to send in their application forms. The deadline for submissions is the 21st of November.
Applications for singers and authors
If the singer is not the author of his entry’s text or music, he should sign a declaration of consent with the author(s) of the song he is going to perform. And vice versa: if the author(s) of a song are not going to perform themselves, they should point singer's name in their application. Only one application from every candidate is allowed. The song should be sent in English and Russian or Belarusian versions.
All interested musicians and song authors should send a valuable parcel with an application to the following address: 220807, Minsk, str. Makaenka, 9, BTRC, marked "National qualifying round of song competition "Eurovision-2015".
The whole procedure consists of two rounds: the jury’s reviewing, listening and selection, and the national final. For these both steps, BTRC will select two different panels of jury members. The results of the auditions will be announced not later than on the 5th of December. The jury will select the best 15 singers and the best 30 compositions that go directly to the national final. The Belarusian national final will take place not later than on the 23rd of January.
The winner of the Belarusian national selection will be a joint decision of an expert jury and TV viewers. The jury will consist of seven members who will be announced during the live show. The number of points the jury can give to one candidate is 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12. The TV viewers can vote for their favourites via sms and telephone call.
If two candidates will reach the same highest number of points, it will be jury's decision who they want to represent Belarus in Vienna.
